lyrics

You are overwhelmed, I know
I’m not picking up the slack
I’m awash in my own woe
One foot forward, forty back

I am struggling to speak
You’re not picking up the slack
You’re defeated more each week
One foot forward, forty back

How’d it come to this
What set us adrift
Thought these rings would keep us
Facing our true north

But we are headed nowhere fast
And we’re not picking up the slack
We’ll be miles apart before we notice
One foot forward, forty back

All the bills piled to the sky
No one’s picking up the slack
We’ll be desperate by and by
One foot forward, forty back

How’d it come to this…

But we are headed nowhere fast
And we’re not picking up the slack
We’ll be miles apart before we notice
One foot forward, forty back
